New Thickness Measuring Instrument byko-test MP0R

BYK-Gardner - reliable partner of the paint and plastic industries and worldwide renown for its innovative solutions in measuring color, gloss, and physical surface properties - introduces a new member of the family of thickness measuring instruments.


The new instrument byko-test MP0R is specially designed for measuring very thin coatings. Its dual sensor with magnetic-inductive Fe and NFe probe automatically recognizes the substrate. Also premagnetized substrates, which among others are used in the automotive industry, do not influence the readings.


The readings are displayed on 2 illuminated LCD displays: one large one on the front panel and another on the top. So even at parts which are difficult to reach the measured data can be easily read. An integrated radio transmitter transfers the readings wirelessly to the computer with an optional radio receiver.


Furthermore, the byko-test MP0R displays the status and indicates, if the measured value is within specification. And the memory has space for 999 measured values. Additionally, statistic functions facilitate the processing of the measured data.
